New Products: Digitarium Alpha

The Digitarium Alpha from Digitalis Education Solutions (www.digitaliseducation.com) is a digital planetarium projector designed for portable domes that makes exploring the solar system an affordable feat. The projector incorporates all the features of a fixed planetarium, including annual motion; projection of the entire celestial sphere; exact latitude, longitude and date settings; and celestial reference lines and grids. Users of the Digitarium Alpha can view constellation line drawings and art, label objects of interest, and zoom in on any object for a closer look with one piece of equipment. Using the 35-lb. projector is simple since set up takes about a minute, with all the users' default settings automatically positioned. In addition, a backlit remote control enables teachers to run the projector in the dark from anywhere in the room.
